Flight1 releases Ideal Flight for Flight Simulator X: Where will you fly to next?

July 31, 2012 · Filed Under News, Simulator · Comment 

Now you have somewhere to fly – based on your own preferences – airliners to major hubs or a bimble around the local area?  Ideal Flight means never a dull flight again in Flight Simulator X!

Flight1 is pleased to announce the release of an innovative utility that makes deciding where to fly next easy and fun!  You can generate random flights or continue from where you left any aircraft parked at the click of a button.

Ideal Flight has been developed by British developer, Code Legend and is now
available by download via Flight1.

Ideal Flight is an automated flight planner and global weather generation utility like no other, which creates a flight based on your selected filters such as flight duration, favourite routes, aircraft and airports, weather conditions and failures. It then provides a comprehensive pre-flight briefing and post-flight assessment including a Pilot Career log with awards.

Ideal Flight automatically prepares a ‘logical’ next flight for your aircraft, either carrying on from where it was last parked, or generating a random flight to match your pre-set criteria. Read more

“Given the obvious talent and intelligence of the staff, this and future titles from this developer should be very much worth looking forward to.”
